Re-#AnimateEurope, ed. Hans H. Stein

Second page of third story (“How to Save the World”, by Štěpánka Jislová):

Finishing the year by quickly writing up the books I hadn’t previously got around to - this has lingered a while, the finalists for this year’s comics competition run by the Brussels office of the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit, the political foundation associated with the liberal Free Democratic Party; I’m glad to say that they accepted my suggestion of one of the judges. The theme this year was “Re-Animate Europe”, and the entries were all pretty good - the one that particularly spoke to me was the eventual runner up, “My Uncle’s Dream” by Jordana Globerman, about conflict, migration, family and heritage; the winner was “The Old Lady Gives No Answer”, by Magdalena Kaszuba. For those who are interested in both European politics and comics, however superficially, this is a competition well worth following. The full book of finalists can be downloaded here.
